on current.com about john kerry and why president obama should give him the job of secretary of state and not ambassador susan rice. nothing against ambassador susan rice. it is just that john kerry deserves it. he's the chairman of the senate foreign relations committee and oh, by the way again without john kerry saying oh yeah, president obama, barack obama you can do the keynote speech in 2004 when you're only a state senator who's running for senate without that opportunity, there is no obama campaign in 2008. john kerry wants the job. give it to him. got some guy malcolm johnson would calls that 100% idiotic statement. too bad, malcolm. that's how it is. special shout out to the folks on twitter. dab ra and alan -- debra and alan and a couple of others. honesty following us on twitter. >> tweeting at bp show, on this topic, patricia says the media has been reduced to reporting g.o.p. conspiracy theories which is a good point. buckeye kenny saying they're going to try to turn this into something to ruin the presid
the roof off that room today. did you see this? >> senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today that they want to have watergate-style laerhearings on attack at the u.s. consulate in benghazi. and that if you nominate susan rice for secretary of state, they will do everything in their power to block her nomination. as senator graham said, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter from making a nomination like that? >> first of all, i'm not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the succeecond term. those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to
passed already, with those rates and john boehner responded. >> the senate has already passed a law like this. democrats in the house are ready to pass a law like this and i hope republicans in the house come on board, too. we should not hold the middle class hostage while we debate tax cuts for the wealthy. >> i think in stead of the house moving on the senate bill, the senate ought to move on the house bill. >> so the debate has been engaged. it's going to be an interesting conversation on friday to get it started. >> that's right. he'll have the senate leaders and house leaders over to talk about this. one of the things that was so clear from that press conference was that the president is saying let's move this forward, let's move this forward now. he is certainly realizing that when you look at the four years that he has ahead of him, really it about the next 18 months to two years. that's when he has a mandate that, when he has political capital to spend. quickly he also wants to forestall some of these tax hikes that could come as early as january. john boehner initially said, lis
with the kind of entrenched senate air stock ra si. who are they worried about beating them? someone like john mccain isn't that worried. he has been the most vocal voice. and it's hard to see whether those are going to reign him in. the question is do other people who care about their political future and have national aspirations, this they are more likely to likely to walk away from this conspiracy theory. >> we saw harry reid shut down the idea of there being a senate select committee, a mega investigation along the lines of watergate. we also saw resistance to that idea from richard mur, susan collins, joe lieberman, republican speaker of the house john boehner. i felt like that all isolated john mccain a lot. but you know, maybe he stands alone in terms of his influence on foreign policy matters. >> he does. but there's distance emerging between him and where everyone else is. and partly, we should remember this was very -- this was wielded to the election partly because there was this hope and you'd see it all over the conservative blogs. this was the thing that was going to turn around
sore loser. mitt romney or john mccain. >> sound bite: oh, my god. >> stephanie: susan rice is not qualified to be secretary of state because she's not very bright. but sarah palin was the best choice to be vice president. [ bell ringing ] there is that n. did you see this, he got in a spat about why he was having a press conference instead of going to the committee meeting where he would get the information that he was screaming for. >> here he is screaming at the reporter. >> who the hell are you telling me whether i can or not. i'm not giving you an answer for the tenth time. >> stephanie: it's not policy. >> who the hell are you.

benghazi. here's john mccain saying he will do whatever it takes to block her nomination. >> is she effectively disqualified from being secretary of state? you would oppose her nomination? >> yes and we're talking filibuster do whatever you can to block it? >> yes. >> cenk: that's very strong language. when president obama was asked about that, he had strong language. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me, and i'm happy to have that discussion with them for them to go off the a u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with ben gassy and simply making a presentation on information she received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> cenk: that is president obama being furious. that's how it's being described. he wanted to set the record straight. is he right or wrong? let's bring back a political correspondent that is indeed epic. >> michael you and i might disagree. susan rice on the talk shows after the attacks originally seemed to be saying that it was a video that started this, just like the protests in egypt a
formidable opponent, senator john mccain, he's becoming prepare ared for what could be a high-profile nomination fight. mccain and lindsey graham said he will not support the nomination of ambassador rice if she's nominate. >> we will do what we can do block the nomination. >> i don't trust her. i thought she should know better. if she didn't snow better, she shouldn't be the voice of america. >> their chief complaint is they disqualified herself several days after the benghazi on a slew of shows, including "meet the press." >> our current assessment is what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction of what had transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations at our facility in cairo. >> at his news conference, a visibly angry obama fired back. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her rep
in 2012 when you can keep running against john kerry in 2004. it's all over fox this morning. they know how it ends. it's like old biff getting into the "back to the future" car. it's something else, man. >> stephanie: yes, they're literally running the old swift vote as against john kerry because he's rumored to be secretary of defense. >> eric: yes mccain wants watergate hearings and the majority looking for robo calls and impeachment. >> stephanie: they are holding a press conference because of their old pull john mccain and said hearings are not required because he went to the briefing to find out what the truth is rather than grandstanding like the increasingly bitter elf john mccain. >> they had sources sources in the testimony that petraeus game gave in september 14th. he said don't want the center line or do you want the truth. to some it looks like he was going along this was in interest of the national security or was he being blackmailed to toe the line. >> stephanie: some said this to petraeus at some point. >> yes, and then blackmail. >> stephanie: yes, clearly. wow. do we
a single question, what are you willing to give. you know, when john boehner appears, they say are you willing to accept higher rates. no one says what are you going to do about entitlements or anything, there's no question of the president whether he will compromise and what that would look like. >> paul: steve, what do you think the republicans ought to do here? is there a way out for them or are they going to be pushed back into a corner where they have no choice, but to concede that they have to raise tax rates or else go over the cliff and get blamed for that? >> well, it's a tough situation for them. there's no question about it because as you know, the default position, if we don't do anything is for the taxes to go up on everybody on january 1st, and that's something i think both sides want to avoid. it's very interesting, the thing that happened this week to start the week, was who was the first person that barack obama met with in the white house since his election, the labor unions, the labor block, that tells a lot who is driving policy at least at the start of the second t

is representative john heck and peter king. here is their interpretation of the closed door hearings. >> the initial talking points put together in unclassified format at the house intelligence committee initially did state that al qaeda affiliated groups were involved. however, by the time we understand that went through its editing process after it left langley that reference was taken out. >> the fact is the best estimate of the intelligence community on september 15th and 16th was that there was direct al qaeda involvement. that was taken out. to me, again, if i had to presume i would say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out. because there was nobody in the director of national intelligence office. nobody in the cia that did it. so, it was someone else that did it. >> someone in the administration. if you go to the front page of foxnews.com right now you will see the big story on there that's racing raising the question in that piece. we will be speaking to peter king to try to figure out who the administration got the intelligence information their hands and said, okay
frontrunner to be the next secretary of state. republican senators john mccain and lindsey graham have called rice unthus worthy and unqualified for a promotion for her comments that an anti-muslim video triggered the benghazi attack that skilled four americans. president obama insisted the ambassador was simply making a presentation based on the available intelligence and had tough words for the senators. when they go after the u.n. ambassador apparently because they think she's an easy target, then they've got a problem with me. and should i choose, if i think that she would be the best person to serve america in the capacity at the state department department, then i will nominate here. >> eliot: much more on that a little later in the program. the president also reached out to the g.o.p. on immigration reform and offered an idea that he would like to see from congress. >> obama: whatever process we have needs to make sure that border security's strong, needs to deal with employers effectively, needs to provide a pathway for the undocumented here needs to deal with the dream act kids and
of this package? >> i think the challenge for boehner. it will be a test for john boehner's leadership to find the votes within his caucus, to meet the president and others halfway. he has got to come halfway. certainly the president has got to come halfway. that's what this is about. >> eliot: i agree with you. the president has already gone halfway. i think they'll end up meeting his number. winning in politics brings consequences. new orleans mayor marc moriel. thank you for coming on the program. i'm joined by the one and only congressman barney frank. congressman, thank you for joining us. >> great to be here. for >> eliot: for all the good well and happy talk is there a deal being framed up right now? >> i don't know. i hope there is. we've known there was substantively, but politically there has to be republicans who understand that sticking with this deficit reduction coming out of domestic programs, and you expand military spending, and you don't increase tax on the wealthy clearly the election said that's not the right way to go. i know there are republicans who would like to not go
what you really think, don't let john king and outsiders question us. we're just going to have rens priebus or somebody from fox question us so we don't let people know what we think. i don't think democrats and liberals are having a problem letting people know this is what we think about choice or these sort of things. tell them whatever we think. the republicans are, like, let's have four debates, not let them know what we think and move to the middle and pretend we're on the middle instead of on the extreme right. >> abby, one of the things that has really brought to me that this is not my being overly cynical, but that they're not really changing, was something you said. you revealed that your father's faced a backlash because of his more centrist views. you told politico, "he was supposed to speak at a fund-raiser in florida and the rnc contacted him and said because you were speaking out for the need for a third voice you're no longer invited to represent us at a fund-raiser. so he's actually been disinvited to a lot of events." >> i kind of spilled the beans there. not sure i
line the president has them over a barrel. >> john, i think they will kick it down the road. an interim deal that simply post bones all of the elements of the fiscal cliff for three months. and gym baker of two admissions pointed that out. >> that's possible. that's the habit in washington is never to take a problem on. however, after an election like this one, the republicans are really in trouble. they know it. they are reeling with the results. the mitt telephone telephone calls to the donors, all this stuff that's going on, has them back on their heels. and i have a feeling they would like to make a deal with the fear that if there is no deal, the media and obama have the upper hand and are going to put all the blame on the republicans like they did in '94 with the government shut down that cost us a lot. and the public wants a deal. they ought to make a deal. the public supports raising tax rates on the rich. get it done and let's move on. >> pat, what about a compromise that looks like this. we around going to raise the marginal raise on high income earners, but we will make them
that president obama is considering massachusetts senator john kerry as his new secretary of defense. that's right, defense. putting the decorated veteran and former presidential candidate in charge at the pentagon and not at the state department, as had been widely speculated. "the washington post" is sourcing its reporting to unnamed senior administration officials. senator kerry is also not commenting tonight. if senator kerry does move to the cabinet for defense or any other post, there will be an immediate political question for the democrats as to what happens to his u.s. senate seat in massachusetts. senator kerry had mostly been talked about as a potential replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. the post reporting tonight that that nomination for secretary of state is instead almost certain to go to united nations ambassador susan rice. republicans tried to make into a scandal susan rice's comments after the attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. her comments that the attack was thought to be linked to islamist protests rather than an organized terrorist attack. but the
's northwest home and later in suv. overnight, the defense secretary announced john allen, the commanderring general in afghanistan was also under investigation for sending and receiving hundreds of "flirtatious" e-mails that amounted to 30,000 pages to and from jill kelley, the tampa bay socialite whose complaint to the f.b.i. resulted in the petraeus affair being revealed. defense secretary panetta office notified the chairman of the house armed services committee that he referred the allen investigation to pentagon inspector general. >> while the matter is under investigation, and before the facts are determined, general allen will remain commanderer. general allen is entitled to due to press in this -- due process in this matter. >> white house postponed the allen confirmation hearing to be the next supreme commander of europe slated for thursday and asked that thenate move quickly to appoint the next commanderer for afghanistan. allen, married, admitted he didn't have a sexual affair with kelly. petraeus and allen got to know jill kelley in 2010. allen was petraeus' deputy if tampa bay
situation added to the mix. at a press conference today, reporter asked senator john mccain if the fact that general petraeus' mistress kept secret documents in her possession was it more serious than the entire libyan debauchle? >> well, i say with great respect, that's one of the dumbest questions i've ever heard. okay? there is four dead americans. there is four dead americans. not a socialite. not a socialite. i'm answering your question. okay? do you want me to answer your question or do you want to interrupt? which do you want? okay. there is four dead americans. >> bill: senator mccain obviously feels very strongly that there is government mal feesance involved in the libyan chaos. but that has yet to be proved. however, the senate is doing the right thing by holding hearings trying to get the information out to we the people. look at it this way, back in 1972, richard nixon denied anything to do with a low level political break in. if the press had not been aggressive, nixon would have gotten away with it. certainly the break in at the watergate hotel was not nearly as important
to think. that's worse, i think. i am getting the last word. pat, always nice to see you. senator john mccain, me and senators lindsay graham and kelley iiot came to the flor. we poke with senator john mccain earlier. >> thank you, earlier, you were on the senate floor, asking for -- making a resolution for a select and the to -- select committee to investigate benghazi, why? >> well, this tragedy covers jurisdiction of at least four committees. there are certain committees like foreign regulations that have to do with the state department. intelligence, cia, so it crosses a number of boundaries. what we need is what we had after watergate, iran-contra that we would put together a select committee to put together jurisdiction over all the issues. that's the only way to address this terrible tragedy and debacle. >> it's profoundly more efficient because you don't have one official testifying before several committees. >> exactly. again, so many of these activities cross these different lines. cia and d.o.d., department of defense were involved in the protection issues. state department and
at some of the stuff from john mccain here. it's been four years since john mccain lost his presidential bid. just ten days since mitt romney lost, but they still are both holding a grudge apparently against the president in their bitter comments this week. listen to romney's conference call about obama's gifts and mccain's complaints about obama ally u.n. ambassador susan rice. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressive to turn them out to vote. >> susan rice should have known better, and if she didn't know better, she's not qualified. she should have known better. i will do everything in my power to block her from being the united states secretary of state. >> joy reid, let's go after romney first and the way he's calculating how he lost. now, you can give all kinds of reasons for losing and, fair enough, that's what you do in your head. but when you spout the argument that the other guy bought all the interest groups, all the categories of citizens a
